I listened to the most recent podcast for Nerdificent this morning, and now I want to watch the Twilight Zone. I can remember watching these shows when I was younger, and I found some of them unsettling. Now, I suspect that I’d probably find them as unsettling, but not as creepy.
I have been trying to focus on writing at least weekly on here, but during the summer, there’s not much to update. I mean I go to work, the kids go to a day camp, I go home and try to stay cool. The staying cool is sometimes difficult here in Oklahoma. Last Friday, the temperature display in my car said it was 114F. I suspect it might have only been 109F, but that’s hot enough.
Sadly, I rent died on Apoc. Of course, my morts are only level 4 or thereabouts, so I can only get money by going to the training academy. I should see how much my fighter can kill there in the meantime. I guess I could work my way back up to having decent rent money and EQ, but I seem to time it when no one is on, so it’s boring to regen with no one to talk to.
I have been doing some interesting things. I signed up for 750words.com, and have met the goal of writing 750 words for each of 17 days so far this month. Considering I spent a lot of time not writing in the last 6 years, that’s actually pretty good. I’ve also been doing web writing and blog writing for a client website and my own business. I’m working on getting more clients, and know that’s going to take some time to build up. I’m also working on one of the stories that I started years ago when I was MUDding more, and am hoping to eventually finish the 4 stories that I have started – most of them haven’t seen the light of day because I didn’t have anyone to share them with. My husband isn’t much of a reader, sadly.
I haven’t touched my characters on Wasteland 2 in the last few months. I’m at a point where I’m stuck, so I need to get through the place where I’m stuck so I can finish the game. I’m trying to find my way to one of the other locations, and every time I try, I find more radioactive sites that I need to avoid. I should probably search it to see if I can figure out how to get to the locations where I need to go. Google is my friend 😉 That’s how I do so well with Excel at work *grin*
There’s actually going to be a Comic Con here in town next weekend (August 4th and 5th). It’s the first one here – they’re saying first annual, so we’ll see if it keeps up. I was talking to my hairdresser about it, and he said that he’d laugh if anyone went to it in costume because he was thinking that it was more for businesses to get their stuff out there. Then I saw something on Facebook about a costume contest. Which now has me wondering what I can make for a costume in a bit over a week. Not that I’d want to compete in the contest, but I think it’d be fun to go in costume.
